Labe (hamlet)

Labe (German: Elbe) is a hamlet in Šumperk District, Olomouc Region, Czech Republic. It was founded by German settlers from Vrchlabí in 1521. Vrchlabí is called Hohen Elbe in German language, thus the hamlet is obviously named after settlers' hometown. Czech name is a consequence of bad understanding of name's evolution. Officials believed the name was derived from Elbe River which is called Labe in Czech Language. The village was administered by the council of Nové Losiny for most of modern history. Labe has been administered by council of Jindřichov since 1976.

In 1945, the village population was expelled and was not fully repopulated. Only 8 houses remain. The hamlet is used as a recreational area.
